Roman Villa in Italy

I have recently returned from a visit to the on-going excavations of a large Roman villa near Naples. There were many exceptionally fine frescos. This is a small part of a particularly whimsical set which extended for many metres along one of the walls.

There were very many more and it was an exceptionally well restored and interesting place.

That sounds like a fantastic holiday! Hope you had a good time. I love the photo.

We all had a great time, thanks. The Amalfi coast is so beautiful and I do love my old ruins.

The day we went to Pompeii and Herculaneum it poured with rain part of the time, so we felt right at home - and easier than too much sun!

I will post more pictures over the next few days.
